Fire Safety Cover Plan | By-law
Message from the Warden
On March 1st, 2002, the Pontiac MRC received notice from the Ministry of Public Security on the obligation to develop and implement its fire safety cover plan on its territory.
Since then, many people have invested time and energy in order to achieve the adoption of our cover plan. The Pontiac MRC through its Council of Mayors has realized its desire to meet the responsibilities that were given by the provincial government by creating a position for a public security coordinator, the first person to hold this position being Mr. Jacques Piché.
Today, we record the beginning of a new era in the management of fire safety in the municipalities of the Pontiac MRC. In addition to the fire safety coordinator, the establishment of a permanent steering committee will provide all stakeholders an effective means of communication, consultation and decision making. This committee, composed of elected officials, director generals and fire chiefs will now have the important task of ensuring the implementation of the fire safety cover plan.
It is with a spirit of cooperation and a desire to succeed that I invite you all to rally and work collectively with all our partners to achieve the objectives of our cover plan as effectively as possible. Let us remember that our role is to work in the development of our community and to ensure their safety. This project is a great way to rally the forces of our 18 municipalities and develop our sense of belonging to the Pontiac.
In conclusion, allow me to offer my congratulations to all the stakeholders for the realisation of the cover plan and I assure you my full cooperation for the implementation of the subsequent phases.
